Google's self driving car to hit first public route this summer !

12:31 AM
  Back in those lovely days of my childhood i used to play with many small toys like action figures from various movies such as He-Man, batman, even Pokemon tazoos sort of..But the toys that i was more often attracted to were RC(Remote control) cars, which were kinda like whatsapp texts of my childhood generation #Addiction, i used to drive it all over my house creating mess all around, it would make me feel that i'm more like a driver ! Never thought that someday cars would drive on their own, So does that mean it has got a mind of it's own ? Nope that's, artificial intelligence which we can modify, upgrade or degrade at any time , working seamlessly with the software algorithms. Well Google has recently brought something awesome called " Self driving project ".
   
   So what are these Self-driving vehicles ?
   They are basically designed in mind to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. They won’t have any steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal, because they don’t need them, it's a self driving car isn't it?. Software and sensors are the name of the game for all the work that occurs. The vehicles will take you where you want to go at the push of a button from point A to point B no matter what.

  Google claims that these cars will reduce 94% of the error by human brains causing accidents and save many lives, well if these cars drive properly in line and length there wouldn't be any traffic, no overtakes happening, imagine the road without traffic *blush* ! Well if you're the one who doesn't know driving but needs to reach urgently at a specific place well now you don't have to worry ! Google's self driving car is here. This was the basic concept of a self driving car.
    Today, Google made an announcement that this summer, a few of their prototype vehicles will hit the roads of Mountain View, California, with their safety drivers aboard. Ever since the announcement of this project they've been working hard to perfect the self driving experience in every bit possible passing those cars through rigorous training by hitting roads. The  Lexus RX450h SUVs have logged nearly a million autonomous miles on the roads since they started the project, and recently have been self-driving about 10,000 miles a week. Each prototype has an 25mph friendly speed ,while during the next phase Google is planning to introduce removable SAB ( Steering wheel, Accelerator, Brake ) Pedals giving few users to Speed up/Slow down occasionally.
    Just imagine If you're nearby any hotel, hungry enough.. you can just get off and go inside the hotel just let the car park itself instead of wasting your time, Imagine those long rides where you have to constantly drive and switch with your family members to reach upto a point, well now just let the car drive instead take a nap ! that's an important step toward improving road safety and transforming mobility for millions of people.
Spoiler : No need to drive and spill your coffee on yourself due to a sudden brake ,hell even whatsapp texts got a lot better now..! , even tough don't text while driving !!
